Anyone with Experience Towing a Volvo XC70 4 Down?

I'm in the market for a toad. 1st choice is a Volvo XC70.

They are not listed in the Dinghy Towing GUide and I've not found much on the internet about towing them 4 down.

Since it will be just a toad I'm looking at used 2003 to 2006.

Any help or info would be appreciated.

Front wheel drive, manual transmissions are towable.
All front wheel drive automatics require a tow dolly. All 4WD/AWD require a trailer.

Thanks for the replies.

Doesn't look good for the Volvo. I'll keep trying.

The Remco is very informative. I've started plugging in my toad choices there to see what will be the easiest.
